Star Ocean 5: Integrity and Faithlessness has been looking pretty promising lately, so it's a bit of a shame to hear that it's been delayed in Japan. The role-playing game, which features hectic, action-based combat, was previously slated for release on the 25th February, but the launch date's now been pushed back to the 31st March.

According to an official post by publisher Square Enix - kindly translated by Gematsu - the title needs to be polished, and the delay will allow for this. Of course, the potential knock-on effect is that we'll be waiting a little longer for a confirmed Western release date - but we'd imagine that it's still on track for its 2016 window.
